What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

We need a National Public Health Care System

People do not realize what they are in for until they get sick in this country and require health care. Then the nightmare begins.


And this is why we need a National Public Health Care System free from the for-profit system; nothing else will work as the Canadians are finding out just as Tommy Douglas warned after the single-payer reform: "Keep fighting for socialized health care until you get it."


What we need is publicly funded health care that is publicly administered and publicly delivered.


We need a network of community health care centers across our country instead of over 800 military bases dotting the globe protecting Wall Street's profits and investments.


This is the socialist solution to this health care mess.


A united working class movement can win the struggle for real health care reform.
